Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation's Investigative Group.
"Between the time Awan started working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005 and his family members were let go, earlier this year, they had collectively earned more than $4 million in tax paid salaries".
Imran Awan, an IT staffer at the U.S. congressional computer equipment center who was working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman, was arrested at Washington D.C.'s Dulles Airport while trying to flee the country, media reported.
Imran Awan, 37, was sacked by Wasserman Schultz after his arrest Monday night at Dulles International Airport.
Bill Miller, a spokesman for the US Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia, toldthe Daily Caller that Awan "was arraigned today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on one count of bank fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344". He says Awan was cleared to travel and had informed the House of his plans to visit his family before the scheduled trip. That money was then wired to Pakistan, documents allege.
Awan was under criminal investigation for allegedly double-billing the House for numerous equipment like computers, iPads, and routers. Awan, however, was kept on staff by Rep. Alvi had "numerous pieces of luggage" and more than $12,000 in cash, Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Brandon Merriman wrote in the affidavit.
According to the arrest warrant, the children "were abruptly taken out of school without notifying" their teachers, and investigators do not "believe that Alvi has any intention to return to the United States".
A spokesperson for Wasserman Schultz confirmed Awan was sacked on Tuesday.
Awan also was ordered to turn over all his passports.
"Mr. Awan previously served as a part-time employee but his services have been terminated", said Damron in a statement. More will become clear at the first hearing, scheduled for August 21. "No charges, evidence or findings from the investigation have been formally shared with our office, so we can not comment on them", Fox News quoted Damron as saying.
Awan was arrested for bank fraud after illegally securing a loan from a federal credit union for $300,000.
